A physical check does not tell the whole story as only part of the prostate can be accessed for examination. A PSA blood test can be more specific if cancer is present. A privately paid for MRI scan if not available from the public health service will provide the best information one way or the other.

Chorus optical fibre cable and the aftermat.

The information I received prior to the start of this work was every thing would be put back to Council standards. Presumably an effort to re-establise the grass verge by leveling top dressing and seeding. Not so in my case view the evidence and commiserate with my despair. Please note I have made numerous attempts with Chorus and the Council to have this rectified but like the Groundhog Day movie the harder you try the more it stays the same.

We want to say a huge thank you to the incredible OneSight team who have recently spent time at five Salvation Army centres around the country providing free eye tests and glasses to Kiwis who are unable to afford them.

624 people were seen over five days with nearly 70% needing glasses. Amazingly, 150 people attending the clinics were are able to leave with their new glasses which were manufactured on site!

OneSight Programme Manager for Australia/New Zealand Jenny Harnett says it was an honour to partner with The Salvation Army to deliver these clinics to communities in need. “We believe that glasses unlock potential, providing opportunities for students to learn, for people to work and earn a living, to drive, to read, and to support their families."

Thanks again OneSight!

Well loved, 6 upholstered chairs and solid wood extendable lovely oval table which also comes with a glass top for the normal table size, which we have left on every day.
The extendable piece of the table has only ever been used approximately 4 times but is extremely handy if you are having say the family Christmas at your house :)
There are numerous scratches, marks etc mainly on the chairs and the feet of the table. Also a few buttons missing on the diamond buttoned chairs. However we have loved it the way it is and dont seem to notice them as the actual table top, with the glass protection is pretty good apart from a few blemishes as per photos.

The chairs also get a regular clean when we clean the carpets.

The dimensions are 1740 (normal length) then 2250 when extended and 1090 in width.

This was a quality piece of furniture in its day and if someone wanted to get this lovely dining room suite back to its perfect former glory, it would make a great restoration project.

It comes from a clean, smoke free home.

Price: $299
